Place to be near by Miami, calm and clear water, good for diving, not too much to see, but safe. The sunset is absolutely beautiful, and at this time of the year is around 6:30 pm.

Unless you have your own boat to get you here, you need to pay to take a boat trip out here...it is remarkably clean...it is maintained by NPS...and can be used for free by anyone I guess...beautiful views from it...
